Bill Gates and His $10 Billion Vaccine Scam

A couple of years ago, Bill Gates, then still “the richest man in the world”, announced that he was “donating” $10 billion to fund “vaccine research” for some of the world’s worst diseases.

About $1 billion of Bill Gates’ donation/tax deduction was earmarked for research to find a vaccine to prevent malaria which is the number one killer in Africa.

I live in Eritrea in the Horn of Africa, and the government here has reduced malaria mortality by over 80% in the last decade. This is the biggest breakthrough in preventing malaria mortality in history, yet there has yet to be a single story on this in any of the major international media.

This historic breakthrough has been accomplished in Eritrea by the use of good old-fashioned public health methods, that tried and true science that is responsible for the major increase in longevity that took place in the 20th century. That’s right, public health, meaning first of all, clean drinking water, sanitation, and hygiene, has been the biggest breakthrough in human health in history; not antibiotics or vaccines or drugs of any sort. Yet Public Health is increasingly under attack in much of the western world.

Eritrea has developed a three-pronged approach to preventing malaria mortality. First, the Eritrean Ministry of Health provides free insecticide-treated mosquito nets to all of its population in the areas where malaria is endemic. Insecticide-treated mosquito nets repel mosquitos, keeping them from biting a person while they are sleeping and come in contact with the mosquito net, something almost inevitable. Insecticide-treated nets also prevent mosquitos from entering inside the nets via holes or gaps in the net’s coverage.

The problem with insecticide treatment is it only lasts 3 months, after which the net loses much of its effectiveness. The Eritrean Ministry of Health has instituted a mandatory retreatment program for all of its population, and if the people do not bring their nets in for re-treatment, the health teams go to the people’s homes and make them re-treat their nets.

The second part of the Health Ministry’s malaria program has been the establishment of community-based medical clinics where the population can go to get a free blood test to determine what variety of malaria they may have and to get the proper treatment for it. Almost every village in the Eritrea malaria belt is within a few hours’ walk or ride from a community medical clinic, and immediate treatment for those who have contracted malaria is now accessible for almost all of Eritrea’s malaria belt residents.

The third part of the program is mosquito habitat eradication by filling in breeding sites and/or spraying insecticide on these areas.

These 3 simple, basic public health practices have resulted in the biggest breakthrough in malaria mortality prevention in history; yet to this day there hasn’t been a single major story covering this in any of the major media internationally.

Why is it that worldwide headlines greet Bill Gates announcement of his “vaccine” program while the biggest breakthrough in one of the major threats to life in much of the world remains unknown?

Maybe, just maybe, this is because Eritrea’s public health approach to preventing malaria mortality is not going to put tens of billions of dollars in the pockets of the drug company cartels, one of the most profitable industries in the world.

Malaria is caused by a parasite, actually a family of parasites, and has a history of quickly developing resistance to medication. After over three decades of research, no one has been able to develop a “vaccine” for malaria or some form of permanent prevention. After so many have tried and failed in the past, there are more than a few in the field of malaria research who doubt that any form of conventional “vaccine” will be found. They believe that even if some form of “vaccine” is developed by the drug companies, malaria will most likely develop resistance to it and a new, patented “vaccine” will have to be bought by Africa’s poor every few years.

A  “donation” of $1 billion or so to develop a malaria “vaccine” could turn into “a gift that keeps on giving” in the form of tens of billions of dollars in new, patented “vaccine” sales in Africa alone, and Bill Gates, through his investment portfolio of drug company stocks, will quietly pocket a continuous flow of African blood money. What Bill Gates’ “donation” amounts to a malaria drug addiction program for Africa’s people.

It is impossible to say just how many hundreds of thousands, maybe millions of lives could have been saved in the two years or so since Bill Gates announced his multibillion dollar “donation” to vaccine research if just a small percentage of his “gift” had been spent on implementing the Eritrean model of malaria mortality prevention.

Bill Gates didn’t get to be a multibillionaire by being a nice guy; far from it. He and his ilk are perfectly willing to sit back and wait for their “donation” to pay off while millions die in Africa, deaths that could almost be eliminated by implementing Eritrea’s historic breakthrough in malaria mortality prevention.

So don’t believe Bill Gates has anyone else’s best interests at heart when he donates $10 billion to “vaccine” research; far from it. And don’t forget that in this world, no good deed goes unpunished, as the UN inSecurity Council is once again considering  how to implement new sanctions to try and cripple the Eritrean economy and hurt the Eritrean people.

    This is another example of the colonisation of the developing world by the 1st world countries and their insane wealth. Some countries(like singapore) are under their thumb(s) and keep their people subjugated. This is what will happen to Eritrea. The author must keep the world aware of what is happening in Eritrea.

    The funding for Eritrea’s campaign against malaria ……(according to your link)

    “External funding for malaria control has increased to US$ 4 million per year since 2007, most of which is provided by the Global Fund and WHO.”

    so when you start talking sh1t about a guy donating money for vaccines and research…you make a fool of yourself.

    really pathetic and stupid and small.

    Jeremy, that may well be due to the fact that Mountain doesn’t have an argument that requires countering.

    All that clown ever does is make assertions based upon skewing reality.

    In this case, all he does is malign Gates’ rather astonishing generosity without presenting a single FACTUAL reason and instead brings a mess extraordinarily stupid conjecture.

    You really want to credit the idea that someone donates $10 BILLION because he’s looking to get rich from it????????????????????

    Think about that , Jeremy.

      You just acknowledged that you don’t actually have an argument. Think about that, fuster. You may also want to try actually reading the article.

        Jeremy, have you ever actually studied logic, formal OR symbolic?

        What I said was that I wasn’t offering a counter-argument because Mountain hadn’t offered an argument but merely made an absurd assertion about Gates and his motivation.

        Not advancing an argument is not an equivalence not being able to advance one. Again, you’re claiming non-existence of something because you haven’t seen it.

          But Mountain did make an argument. And as you just again acknowledged, you didn’t actually offer a counterargument. Again, I suggest you try actually reading and comprehending articles before commenting. Your last warning on trolling.

            If Mountain made any factual argument to show that Gates’ donation was a scam, please point it out to me and I’ll apologize for my incomprehension.

            Argument that there are better alternatives do not render funding research into vaccination a “scam”.
